‘Spider-Man,’ ‘Shang-Chi’ Top Critics Choice Super Award Nominations

”Evil“ and ”Midnight Mass“ are the leading TV nominees in an awards show designed to celebrate action, sci-fi and superhero entertainment

AWARDS BEAT

“Spider-Man: No Way Home” and “Shang-Chi: The Legend of the Ten Rings” lead the nominations for the second annual Critics Choice Super Awards, an awards show designed to celebrate the kind of superhero, sci-fi/fantasy, horror and action films that aren’t usually honored by the critics.

The Critics Choice Association announced the nominations on Tuesday morning, with “Spider-Man” and “Shang-Chi” each receiving five nominations, including Best Superhero Movie. “No Time to Die,” “The Harder They Fall,” “The Suicide Squad” and “Don’t Look Up,” the Adam McKay comedy classified by the Critics Choice Association as a science fiction or fantasy movie, received four each.

Last year’s Cannes Palme d’Or winner, “Titane,” was classified as a horror film by the CCA and received three nominations. Other films with that many noms included “Black Widow,” “Candyman,” “Free Guy,” “Last Night in Soho,” “The Green Knight,” “The Last Duel” and the one Super Awards nominee to also receive significant attention from the Oscars, “Dune.”

In the television categories, “Evil” and “Midnight Mass” received the most nominations, six each, followed by “Loki” and “WandaVision” with five and the Korean sensation “Squid Game” with four.

The Critics Choice Super Awards are one of many awards handed out by the Critics Choice Association, a group of more than 500 critics and entertainment journalists. The winners will be revealed in an announcement on March 17, four days after the CCA’s main show, the Critics Choice Awards, will take place at the Fairmont Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles and the Savoy Hotel in London.
